Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga Calls for Prompt Launch of Energy Super Grid Project in Northeast Asia

Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga urged Russia and other regional countries on Wednesday to launch implementation of the energy super grid project in Northeast Asia as soon as possible.

VLADIVOSTOK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 12th September, 2018) Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga urged Russia and other regional countries on Wednesday to launch implementation of the energy super grid project in Northeast Asia as soon as possible.

"I propose you, without wasting time, to jointly start the implementation of the project of the energy super grid of Northeast Asia to provide the countries of the region with electricity," Battulga told a plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Russia's Vladivostok.

The official also called on China, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the North to set up a joint organization on the energy super grid.

"Such organization will be able to coordinate the research work which has been carried out so far on the implementation of the project, define a common policy and develop the necessary documents.

We are ready to host this organization in Mongolia. In order to quickly set it up, I propose to form a joint working group," Battulga underlined.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has also addressed the EEF plenary session, said that the idea of the energy super grid was quite feasible.

"We discussed these proposals with the president of Mongolia at a bilateral meeting. We are familiar with them, we are working on them. In principle, [Mongolia's proposals] are quite feasible," Putin said at the plenary session.
